Sweet Kindness and Commitment

redheartAt some point in this piece i’ll ask you to sign and share this petition. Might as well do it now. Please go ahead. Get it over with. Tell your friends a conservation area designed to protect Victorian Villas from demolition is under threat. Ask them to help make conservation matter in Crouch End. Other people do.Other people who show sweet kindness and commitment. This is the latest list:

  1. The 20 strong campaign group who continue to meet on a regular basis in our gaff
  2. Banners Restaurant and the ArtHouse Cinema who have always carried our petition and who continue to encourage us.
  3. Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum and the Highgate Society who agreed to attend our meetings and placed objections with Haringey Council
  4. The Victorian Society who took the time out to point us to a webpage that advised us how to lead a campaign
  5. Each and every soul that took the time to sign and twice those same souls when they went on to share, using social media to the benefit of our aims.
  6. The Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum again for recognising us at the their stall and talking to us like friends, sharing jokes and lifting our spirits
  7. Everyone who stopped to sign the petition on the streets and took the time to speak with us, telling us about their enthusiasm for our cause and their regrets at losing similar battles against powerful developers who show more money than taste
  8. Transitions Crouch End who before showing the incredible Greenpeace film ‘How To Change The World’ gave us the space to speak and the chance to ask for more signatures.
  9. The motivated green activists in the room that night who have set an example with their tenacity and willingness to keep going in the face of apathy. Their courage is based on the truth they hold dear.
  10. Sheila, (sorry don’t know your real name) but you took a petition sheet off us and said you’d get it filled out and two days later you showed up at our door as promised. You didn’t have to do that.

None of you had to do the things you do but you do. Its been a joy getting to know you and re-acquainting ourselves with the positivity that exists within our local and online commmunities. Thank you very much.
